Suitable for SSS and keyboard. This tune, supported by a distinctive organ ostinato in 5/8 time, combines the immediacy and freshness of a folksong with the spiritual sincerity of an anthem.

Bob Chilcott has been involved with choral music all his life, first as a Chorister and then a Choral Scholar at King's College, Cambridge. Later, he sang and composed music for 12 years with the King's Singers. His experiences with that group, his passionate commitment to young and amateur choirs, and his profound belief that music can unite people, have inspired him both to compose full-time and, through proactive workshopping, to promote choral music worldwide.Review:
A well structured piece, in one of the excellent styles we have come to expect from Mr Chilcott, and which are always a pleasure to play and sing. Henry Howell, Australian Music Teacher March 2002 It has a beautiful simplicity and melodic charm that will again prove attractive ... this setting could be successfully attempted by an average school or church ensemble... The work as a whole offers charm, originality and simplicity and I am certain that this will find a place in the repertoire of many choirs. Music Teacher March 2002 His music, possesses the winning combination of melodic beauty, harmonic attractiveness, imaginative textures and thematic development, which together form an immediately appealing style reaching across the age barrier in any choir. These are beautifully crafted, delightful little gems which will be enjoyed by everyone. Though three-part division is occasionally necessary, the parts are very singable, not hard, and will rapidly be learned. Organists' Review August 2001 Bob Chilcott as an ex-member of and arranger for the King's Singers, knows how to write a good tune. This is most in evidence in two short anthems for upper voices - 'Irish Blessing' and 'Loving Shepherd' - both of which would admirably suit a children's choir of moderate ability.
